I have owned numorous cars across the board (BMW 530, Lexus ES300, Acura, etc..). There has not been a car that has even come close to the feeling you get from driving the new IS 250 AWD. The car stands out like no other. And to top it off, you are in a LEXUS. What more can you ask for. Before the new IS came out, I was torn between the Acura TL and the infiniti G35 Coupe. Once the IS was finally available to test drive, I was so thankful that I waited. I would of been truly disappointed if I would of bought one of the other cars. Not that they were bad choices, but in my eyes, they are not even in the same league.
Keyless entry, the interior is so plush, the exterior is very sharp. Performance.
People are saying that it can use a little more power. I disagree. If I wanted a sports car, I would of bought a Corvette for the power. I would like to see that they match the competitors service contract (5 year 50,000 mile free maintenance service).
